Hello All,
I have a hackintosh up and running on Lion with the above mother board...
The board has 2 sata 6.0 4 sata 3.0's. I have a bluray and a dvd writter connected to two of the sata 3.0's.
The other 4 each have a hard drive connected thru a power switch where I can load OSX, Windows, Ubuntu, by switching the power to which drive I want to boot from...
My PCI express x16 lane is occupied by AMD HD 5870.
I'm wanting to get into the SSD now....The only thing with the small capacities, (thinking of getting 2 240's, one for windows, one OSX) I'm still going to need the hard drives for less used programs..
All this adds up to I need more SATA ports, so maybe if someone could recommend to me a pci express card with preferably 4 ports that would work under LIon and Windows. Also my case has two esatas and I didnt have any extra satas to connect those. The card really doesnt have to be sata 6.0, as I cant see myself getting more than two which I can just use the ones on the motherboard. Just mainly to get the opticals off the motherboard and connect the esatas...
any help on this will be greatly appreciated....
Thanks.....
And Merry Christmas......
